Personal Jesus

I had the opportunity to visit a traditional Goan house a few months ago and along with alcohol cellars, the other thing that got my attention was the presence of God in the form of clay and glass frames.

In keeping with the hippy atmosphere of Goa, this painting had a psychedelic touch

But a not-so-little tabernacle in the corner of a room had sketches and paintings of all the saints in the Catholic church and oh, Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Sometimes I wonder why the fanatic word is always paired up with religions other than Catholicism.
